    In General 
A noble order of protectors unified by their ability to tap into the power of the Force, the Jedi Order served as the guardians of peace and justice in the Galactic Republic for over a thousand generations. Due to the machinations of their dark antithesis known as the Sith, the Jedi are ultimately wiped out by the iron fist of the Empire.
  • Action Girl: Name a female Jedi, and by virtue of being a Jedi, she will be this.
  • All There in the Script: A great deal of these Jedi are only named in the movie credits, scripts, and character guides.
  • Ascended Extras: The EU, and especially Star Wars: The Clone Wars, take the time to turn the background Jedi fully fleshed out characters.
  • Badass Army: Their mastery of the Force makes them the most powerful individuals in the galaxy.
  • Canon Immigrant: A few Jedi, most notably Aayla Secura and Quinlan Vos, debuted in the Star Wars: Republic comic series before appearing in the films and The Clone Wars. This saved them from being completely wiped from continuity in the 2014 reboot.
  • Combat Clairvoyance: A stock Jedi power is the ability to sense things before they happen, giving them heightened reflexes.
  • Cool Starship: The Jedi pilot their own starfighters, which suspiciously resemble Darth Vader's personalized TIE fighter.
  • Cool Sword: The lightsaber, a Jedi Knight's signature weapon, which can cut through almost anything and defend against almost any attack.
  • Death by Cameo: In Revenge of the Sith, George Lucas' son Jett plays the Jedi Padawan who gets killed fighting clone troopers in front of Bail Organa, while stunt coordinator Nick Gillard plays one of the Jedi Vader kills in the security hologram.
  • Four-Star Badass: The Jedi really get to demonstrate how Badass they are when they're made generals of the Republic Army during the Clone Wars.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: Their involvement in the Clone Wars makes their claims as peacekeepers seem hypocritical, which alienates them from the public. Palpatine uses this to his advantage when he provokes them into an assassination attempt.
  • Humanoid Aliens/Rubber-Forehead Aliens: The Jedi run the gambit with alien members (but not so alien that they can't use a lightsaber), ranging from human actors with body paint such as Aayla Secura and Luminara Unduli, to more elaborate pieces with full masks like Plo Koon and Kit Fisto.
  • Infant Immortality: Firmly not in effect during Order 66, and even during The Clone Wars animated series.
  • Jedi Mind Trick: The Trope Namer; with a wave of their hand, a Jedi can influence a weak-minded individual's thoughts and actions.
  • Killed Off Screen: The films showcase only a handful of the Jedi's deaths, but considering Luke is deemed the last of the Jedi in Return of the Jedi, it's a safe bet to say that a whole lot of Jedi didn't make it.
  • Knight Errant: Often act as this, being the guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy.
  • Long Neck: Yarael Poof, a Council member in The Phantom Menace. Word of God says he was written out of the other prequels to avoid confusion with the similarly long-necked Kaminoans.
  • Martial Pacifist: All Jedi are inherently this, as Yoda teaches Luke:
    Yoda: A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack.
  • Master Swordsman: Some of them, particularly Yoda and Mace Windu, are stated to be the greatest lightsaber duelists in the galaxy.
  • Mind over Matter: The Jedi can use the Force to lift, push, and crush objects.
  • One-Man Army: A single Jedi is all it takes to wipe out entire legions of battle droids.
  • Properly Paranoid: They are reluctant to train Anakin as a Jedi on account of him being too old to begin his training, and thus vulnerable to the dark side.
  • Self-Fulfilling Prophecy: Their weariness to trust Anakin due to his closeness to The Dark Side is a major part of why he turns in the first place.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, Tholothian Adi Gallia and Zabrak Eeth Koth are switched out on the Council by two other Jedi of the same species, Stass Allie and Agen Kolar, respectively. You'd have to pay extra close attention to notice, and even then, the characters are so minor in the films it doesn't even change much of anything in the movies (though Gallia has the excuse of being killed off in Star Wars: The Clone Wars).
  • Technical Pacifist: They regard themselves as "keepers of the peace" who try to defend life and only kill when necessary. Even when the order is almost defunct, they try to solve problems peacefully rather than rush into battle.
  • Warrior Monk: They combine Western chivalry and swordsmanship with Eastern mysticism and acrobatics.

Jedi Council

Jedi Masters

    Qui-Gon Jinn 

Qui-Gon Jinn

Portrayed by: Liam Neeson

A venerable if maverick Jedi Master who mentored the Padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi. Discovering the young Anakin Skywalker on Tatooine, he comes to believe the boy to be the Chosen One of Jedi prophecy; it is at his dying request that Anakin is trained to become a Jedi. Following his death, he became one with the Force and communed with Yoda during the Clone Wars.
  • Ambadassador: He and Obi-Wan are sent to negotiate with the Trade Federation at the start of The Phantom Menace. He luckily has his lightsaber with him when the Federation prove themselves in no mood for negotiations.
  • Ascended to a Higher Plane of Existence: According to Yoda at the end of Revenge of the Sith, Qui-Gon managed to retain his consciousness and achieve immortality after his death.
  • Badass: Only Darth Maul managed to engage Qui-Gon on equal footing, and even though Maul emerged victorious, it took quite an effort from the Sith Lord.
  • Badass Baritone: Liam Neeson's deep, husky voice only adds to Qui-Gon's commanding presence.
  • Badass Beard: A quite full chin-strap and mustache.
  • Badass Grandpa: Drafts of the Phantom Menace script have his age at 60.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: He's a maverick by Jedi standards, preferring to live in the moment rather than to fulfill one's own destiny. His teachings still shape Obi-Wan into a wise and legendary Jedi Knight.
  • The Cassandra: His belief that the Sith have returned and that Anakin is The Chosen One are initially dismissed by the Jedi Council, but turn out to be true.
  • The Chooser of The One: When he meets Anakin and sees what he's capable of, Qui-Gon is convinced he's found The Chosen One of Jedi prophecy.
  • Dead Person Conversation: He appears in front of both Obi-Wan and Anakin on Mortis, and is able to speak to Yoda in "Voices", despite being dead for over a decade. Yoda later convenes with him again around the time of Revenge of the Sith, and teaches Obi-Wan to do the same between trilogies.
  • Decoy Protagonist: Of The Phantom Menace. He gets top billing, takes up a sizable amount of space on the poster, and has the most influence and screentime out of the heroes in the movie, but it's all to set up Anakin as the true protagonist.
  • Energy Being: Because his training to do so wasn't complete, he can't manifest himself as a spirit, but on a planet sufficiently strong in the Force, he can appear as a "flock of light".
  • Famous Last Words: "Obi-Wan... promise me you will train the boy. He... is the Chosen One... he will bring balance. Train him."
  • Friend to All Living Things: Qui-Gon is noted for having much compassion for all living things.
  • Honor Before Reason: Despite the Council's very clear and valid apprehensions towards making Anakin a Jedi, Qui-Gon is as determined as any to see the boy be trained.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: How Darth Maul kills him.
  • Jedi Mind Trick: Uses this on Boss Nass to save Jar Jar's life and get them a transport to Theed. Later tries (and fails) to do the same on Watto to haggle over a needed starship hyperdrive.
  • The Last DJ: Obi-Wan believes Qui-Gon would've been on the Jedi Council long ago if not for his tendency to do things his own way rather than by the Jedi Code; needless to say, Qui-Gon doesn't seem to mind.
  • Last Request: His is for Obi-Wan to train Anakin in his place after he dies.
  • Looks Like Jesus: Even wears robes as part of his Jedi outfit.
  • Martial Pacifist: He's the epitome of this, especially when his mid-battle meditation contrasted against Darth Maul's animalistic, restless pacing while the two were separated by a forcefield.
  • Master Swordsman: It comes with being an experienced Jedi Master, which lets him fight one-on-one against Darth Maul and his double-bladed lightsaber. His skills only help him for so long, though...
  • Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: His first appearance as a spirit adviser on Mortis was ambiguous enough that Obi-Wan wrote it off as a hallucination of some sort. His second appearance as one to Yoda in the sixth season of The Clone Wars erases that ambiguity.
  • Meditation Power Up: Does so during one of the gaps in his fight with Darth Maul, thanks to some opportunely closed laser shields.
  • The Mentor: To Obi-Wan and Anakin during The Phantom Menace. He becomes the one who teaches Yoda the way of retaining one's identity upon death, and manifesting as a Force-Ghost.
  • Mentor Occupational Hazard: He, as the mentor in the Student and Master Team against Darth Maul, does not survive the fight.
  • The Obi-Wan: Notably serves as this to the man himself, no less, as well as to Anakin in The Phantom Menace.
  • Old Master: In The Phantom Menace, Qui-Gon is the first maverick master seen on-screen (chronologically), at odds with the Jedi Council but respected nonetheless. He trained Obi-Wan and was the person most accountable for introducing Anakin Skywalker to the way of the Jedi, all things considered.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: Despite his inability to manifest himself under normal circumstances, he was able to appear in front of Obi-Wan and Anakin on Mortis, most likely because the planet was such a strong conduit of the Force.
  • Parental Substitute: He's served as one to Obi-Wan for as long as they've been training together. Also acts as one to Anakin, who grew up (and was actually born) without a father.
  • Pragmatic Hero: Being a Jedi doesn't stop him from manipulating Boss Nass into providing a transport to the capital of Naboo, trying to swindle Watto out of a hyperdrive generator, cheating at gambling to free a slave, or subverting the authority of the Jedi Council to ensure that Anakin is trained as a Jedi.
  • Sacrificial Lion: His death at Darth Maul's hands shocks the Jedi into realizing the Sith have returned.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right: His tendency to do this has brought him at odds with the other Jedi, respected as he is. The most influential example by far is when he decides to have Anakin trained as a Jedi despite the Council explicitly telling him no.
  • Spirit Advisor: To Obi-Wan and Anakin during the Mortis arc.
  • Supporting Protagonist: To Anakin in the long run of the prequels.
  • Take Up My Sword: He dies before he has a chance to properly train Anakin, and tells Obi-Wan to take his place.
  • The Unfettered: A rare heroic example of an unfettered character; When Obi-Wan tries to call him out on his more questionable actions, he simply says, "I will do what I must," without hesitation.
  • Unintentional Backup Plan: Qui-Gon's original plan is for Anakin to be trained as a Jedi and bring balance to the Force. This seems to fail when Anakin falls to the dark side. In Return of the Jedi, however, Anakin does bring balance to the Force by ensuring that the last of the evil aspect of the dark side dies with him.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: His request to have Anakin trained as a Jedi spells doom for the Jedi Order along with the rest of the galaxy. It's not entirely his fault, though; if he lived to train Anakin on his own, things may have turned out differently.
  • Weapon of Choice: His green lightsaber.

    Luminara Unduli 

Luminara Unduli

Portrayed by: Mary Oyaya (Attack of the Clones), Fay David (Revenge of the Sith), Olivia d'Abo (The Clone Wars)
Appears in: Attack of the Clones / The Clone Wars / Revenge of the Sith

"We suffer a great many losses in these battles..."

A Mirialan Jedi Master. While she is not a member of the Jedi Council, her advice and wisdom is highly respected by its members and the Republic Senate.
  • Action Girl: She is a powerful and skilled Jedi Master, and managed to duel Ventress without getting killed.
  • Badass in Distress: In "Legacy of Terror", where she was captured by Geonosian zombies and needed to be saved by Anakin and Obi-Wan.
  • Badass Teacher: To Barriss.
  • Bait-and-Switch Comment: In "Cloak of Darkness" Luminara told Ventress, that she recognized Count Dooku's teachings in Ventress' fighting-style, which the assassin took as a compliment. Then Luminara added that she found Ventress' version "unrefined, amateurish, sloppy".
  • Eye Scream: During her duel with Ventress in "Cloak of Darkness", she got some high-pressure steam blown in her eye, visibly turning it red for a short time.
  • Facial Markings: She has a set of cultural tattoos on her chin.
  • Green-Skinned Space Babe: Although she's more attractive in a classically beautiful way, rather than being sexualised.
  • Lady of War: Her fighting style is rather gracious. The British accent also helps in this respect.
  • The Stoic: She keeps a tight leash on her emotions, having fully embraced the Jedi principals of no attachment. While she cares for Barriss, if she dies, Luminara would accept it as her time and the will of the Force.
    Luminara: It's not that I gave up, Skywalker—but unlike you, when the time comes, I am prepared to let my student go. Can you say the same?
  • You Fight Like a Cow: She belittled Ventress' fighting style as an "unrefined, amateurish, sloppy" imitation of Count Dooku's, which apparently was a Berserk Button for the Dark Jedi.

    Tera Sinube 

Tera Sinube

Portrayed by: Greg Baldwin
Appears in: The Clone Wars

"The value of moving slowly is that one can always clearly see the way ahead."

An elderly Cosian Jedi that instead of fighting in the war, turns his efforts to studying Coruscant's criminal underworld and training future generations of Jedi.
  • Badass: Old age hasn't impeded his skill as a detective, nor has it robbed him of his abilities with a sword.
  • Badass Grandpa: He's very old, but that doesn't stop him from easily disarming a lightsaber swinging bounty hunter.
  • Badass Teacher: He drew his lightsaber and stood protectively in front of the Younglings he had been training, during Anakin's duel with the traitorous Barriss Offee.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: He sounds like a senile fool until that precise moment he cracks the entire mystery on his own.
  • The Cameo: He occasionally shows up in the background. Two of his most famous ones showed him training the Younglings from the Young Jedi arc.
  • Cool Old Guy: A skilled detective and master swordsman who is old friends with equally Cool Old Guy Yoda.
  • Eccentric Mentor: He teaches Ahsoka to take things more slowly and think through her actions, a lesson which largely sticks, despite Master Sinube's slightly senile demeanor.
  • Expy: His trolling Bunny-Ears Lawyer attitude, and his way of giving useful advice to a hot-headed youngster, makes him very similar to Iroh.
  • Great Detective: In his youth, now he's a Retired Badass.
  • Let's Get Dangerous: He spends most of the episode being a Great Detective, that is, until the criminal pulls out a lightsaber and he proceeds to utterly trounce them.
  • Lightsaber Cane: His lightsaber is hidden in his cane, allowing him to easily pull it out and surprise his opponents.
  • The Profiler: Once a Great Detective, in his old age, he's more into theoretical work.
  • Retired Badass: An older Jedi Master, Sinube has dedicated himself to training younger Jedi, and hadn't gone into the field for years when Ahsoka asked for his help.
  • Senior Sleep Cycle: His introduction scene shows him having fallen asleep in the middle of some research in the Archives. Subverted in that he is never seen falling asleep while on the job, and Jedi generally tend to have more energy in them than non-Force users even when they reach old age.

    Pong Krell 

Pong Krell

Portrayed by: Dave Fennoy
Appears in: The Clone Wars

"I will not be undermined by creatures bred in some laboratory!"

A General Ripper-type Besalisk Jedi Master, Krell took over leading the 501st from Anakin during the Battle of Umbara. As the battle progressed, his reckless tactics lead to ever escalating conflicts between him and the clones under his command. The clones soon discovered he was trying to lose the battle, having fallen to the dark side and planning on defecting to the Separatists.
  • Arc Villain: The main antagonist of the Umbara-arc, the whole time he's been secretly working to undermine the Republic's effort to capture the planet.
  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: An accurate summary of his strategy.
  • Ax-Crazy: It really shows once he reveals his true colors, taking pleasure in killing many Clones up close and personal, both for helping the Separatists and for his own sadistic amusement.
  • Badass: Jerkassery aside, when he actually decides to get into the action Krell is a formidable warrior.
  • Badass Baritone: He has a very deep, bass voice.
  • Badass Beard: A trimmed, pointed one that doesn't manage to cover his massive, frog-like jaw.
  • Bastard Understudy: He wanted to become Dooku's apprentice once he defected to the Separatists. Stopping the Republic from capturing Umbara would've been his ticket.
  • Beard of Evil: He has a beard, and proves to be quite evil.
  • Blood Knight: His tactics are extremely aggressive, and, at one point while fighting Rex's group, Krell deliberately puts away his lightsabers in favour of killing several clones with his bare hands.
  • The Chessmaster: A small-scale version, but his efforts at playing the clones are highly effective, especially when he sets two battalions against each other.
  • Control Freak: He has no tolerance for having his orders disobeyed or defied, even if he (ostensibly) benefits from the result.
  • Dual Wielding: With double-bladed lightsabers.
  • Evil All Along: Having foreseen the Republic's eventual collapse, he intended to defect to the Sith. In hindsight, all of his idiot strategies made sense.
  • Evil Is Hammy: When Krell reveals his true loyalties, he does it with a big, hammy speech.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Krell's already deep voice becomes almost demonic after he's revealed to be a traitor, due to his sinister delivery and booming, hammy dialogue.
  • Expendable Clone: He doesn't care the least about the casualties his "right in the middle of it" tactics cause.
  • Face-Heel Turn: He has fallen to the Dark Side sometime prior to his introduction, when he foresaw the fall of the Republic.
  • Fantastic Racism: He treats clones with nothing but utter contempt.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He was reasonably polite towards Anakin, and, while he was generally just a Jerkass, Krell managed to show a few shreds of respect to Rex and Sergeant Appo. Even this small affability proved to be a complete lie to cover Krell's true monstrous nature.
  • For the Evulz: He manipulated his clones into being slaughtered and into killing their own comrades because he could. Even if it was part of his plan to defect to the Sith, he obviously enjoyed the clones' deaths.
  • General Failure: The way he commands, you'd think he's trying to lose. Which, it turns out he was.
  • General Ripper: Krell invariably chooses the most straightforward, violent approach, resulting in massive casualties.
  • Genius Bruiser: The genius part only comes into play, when he's true plans are revealed, and once he gets into the action he tears things up.
  • Hoist Hero Over Head: He does this to a clone trooper after revealing his true colors, even breaking his spine on his knee in a manner similar to Bane.
  • I Fight for the Strongest Side: He fights for who he believes will win. When he foresaw the fall of the Jedi, he decided to betray the Republic.
  • In the Back: Rex intended to execute Krell while the treacherous Besalisk was facing the wall of his cell. When Rex hesitated, Dogma intervened and shot Krell in the back.
  • Informed Ability: Said to be a highly successful military strategist, but mostly just gives orders that seem intended to get as many clones killed as possible. Not surprisingly, he's also stated to have the record for highest clone casualty rate. It's later revealed that Krell truly is a brilliant strategist: all of his battle plans were intended to kill as many clones as possible.
  • Jerkass: The nicest way to describe him. He's later revealed to be far worse.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: He gave one or two signs that he might not have been quite as bad as he seemed. Then...
  • The Juggernaut: Nothing that the clones throw at Krell is enough to stop him. Even when a vixus has Krell in it's grip, he still manages to kill quite a few clones before he's stunned long enough for Tup to knock him out.
  • Karmic Death: At the hands of Dogma, the one clone who was utterly loyal to him out of duty.
  • Killed Mid-Sentence: Dogma shoots Krell right in the middle of his Hannibal Lecture to Rex.
    Krell: Eventually, you'll have to do the right thing and— [fatally shot]
  • Lack of Empathy: Even before he's revealed to have been Evil All Along and to have fallen to the Dark Side, he takes the "no personal attachments" part of the Jedi code way too far and doesn't even focus on the part about being compassionate, treating the Clones serving under him as expendable.
  • Large and in Charge: Krell towers over the clones.
  • Large Ham: From the start. Once Krell reveals himself to be a traitor, he revels in delivering almost every line with as much malice and smug superiority as he can with a few Evil Laughs thrown in for good measure.
  • Light Is Not Good: Before The Reveal, you could easily assume he's just a Jedi that puts more emphasis on "no personal attachments" and a lot less on being compassionate.
    • Dark Is Evil: After the reveal, it's confirmed that he has fallen to the Dark Side.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Krell is incredibly fast for his size, effortlessly slaughtering local fauna, and later clone troopers.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Used Rex to secure the loyalty of the troopers in the 501st, despite the resistance his obviously flawed strategies met and tricked two clone battalions into fighting each other. All of this to cripple the Republic offensive on Umbara, which he intended to use as a ticket to become Dooku's apprentice.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: He has four-arms, and he puts them to good use, while wielding two dual-bladed lightsabers.
  • The Neidermeyer: Even before he was revealed to have been Evil All Along, the clones hated him.
  • One-Man Army: He managed to cut through dozens of clone troopers] without much difficulty.
  • Slasher Smile: He sports one once he reveals his true colors.
  • Smug Snake: Even when Rex had a gun aimed at his head, Krell remained absolutely confident that he would come out on top. Dogma proved him wrong.
  • The Sociopath: Krell displays no empathy whatsoever, callously manipulates even the clones who were unquestionably loyal to him, and actively enjoyed massacring them once his duplicity was revealed.
  • Super Window Jump: Does one out of the control tower when the clones begin their attempt to capture him.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: They're indicative of his alien nature and his status as a darksider.
  • Token Jerk Teammate: He treats his clone troopers worse than any Jedi any other Jedi in the war. It is hardly a surprise when is revealed to indeed be evil.
  • Weird Beard: Despite his otherwise hairless appearance, Krell has a beard.

    Jocasta Nu 

Jocasta Nu

Portrayed by: Alethea McGrath (films), Flo Di Re (The Clone Wars)
Appears in: Attack of the Clones / The Clone Wars

"If an item does not appear in our records, it does not exist!"

A former Jedi Council member who now serves as the librarian for the Jedi Archives.
  • Action Girl: Mostly an informed trait, but given that she's a retired member of the Jedi Council, it's safe to assume it's true. When Cad Bane's Clawdite accomplice caught Jocasta by surprise and took her form, she was easily defeated by Ahsoka, who commented that she had Jocasta's form, but not her abilities.
  • Badass Bookworm: She retired from active service to take care of the Jedi Archives.
  • Granny Classic: Sort of. She's not doing any of the usual stuff associated with this trope, but she does act like one towards Ahsoka.
  • Pride: Despite being a Jedi, she can't help but have immense pride in the knowledge gathered in the Jedi Archives. Obi-Wan suggesting that the archives might be missing information annoys her greatly.
  • Retired Badass: Used to be a member of the Jedi Council.

    Quinlan Vos 

Quinlan Vos

Portrayed by: Unknown actor (films), Al Rodrigo (The Clone Wars)

A Kiffar Jedi Master with a reputation for not following the rules. He is an expert tracker, and joins Obi-Wan Kenobi in the hunt for Ziro the Hutt after he escapes from prison.
  • Badass: He held his own against Cad Bane.
  • Barbarian Longhair: He has a rather long and a bit unkept-looking rasta-like hairdo, he walked into the Hutt Council's HQ and accused them of breaking Ziro out of prison, and as Obi-Wan put it "hasn't mastered the concept of knocking." He also happens to be a top-tier badass Jedi.
  • Canon Immigrant: A rather interesting one. He was a nameless background character in The Phantom Menace, with about five seconds of screen-time, and was not intended to be Jedi. However the EU picked him up, and Lucas liked the comics involving Vos so much that he planned on adding him to Revenge of the Sith, but the scene was ultimately cut. He finally appeared in an episode of The Clone Wars, integrating him into the series canon.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Resulted in some hilarious Snark-to-Snark Combat when he teamed up with Obi-Wan.
  • Dynamic Entry: He likes these. When arriving at the Jedi Temple, he didn't wait for his ride to land, he simply jumped down to the platform. And instead of knocking or using his Psychic Powers to open the lock, he entered Mama the Hutt's lair by cutting an "X" in the door with his lightsaber and kicking the pieces in.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Not an actual appearance, but Aayla mentioned him in "Jedi Crash". To make it even more subtle, she referred to him not by the name, just as her Master.
  • Facial Markings: He has a yellow line running across his face, which is a tradition marking done by his people.
  • Human Alien: He is a Kiffar, a species that resemble humans with that traditionally paint on Facial Markings and possess natural psychometry abilities.
  • Lighter and Softer: His portrayal in this series compared to what he usually was like in the Legends EU. The writers for The Clone Wars decided to go back to his personality from his earlier comic appearances instead of using his darker characterization (which had him constantly dealing with his own inner darkness) from the early-to-mid 2000's Republic comics.
  • The Mentor: Trained Aayla Secura to become a Jedi Knight.
  • Parental Substitute: In "Jedi Crash'', Aayla mentions that Vos was like a father to her.
  • Psychometry: He has the ability to read the memories of any inanimate object he touches, and used it to confirm that Ziro had been in the Hutt's club not long before their arrival.

    Other Jedi Masters 

Ima-Gun Di

Appears in: The Clone Wars

"For the Republic! For the Twi'leks!"

A Nikto Jedi general who led the initial liberation force to free Ryloth before being killed during the battle.
  • Badass: Manages to hold off a massive droid army alongside his men, giving his life to buy the Twi'lek resistance time to escape.
  • Back-to-Back Badasses: Briefly with Captain Keeli.
  • Dying Moment of Awesome: He even invoked it when he and Keeli were the last ones standing:
    Ima-Gun Di: Let's make the end memorable!
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He sacrifices himself (and his troops) to allow the Twi'lek La Résistance to escape.
  • Last Stand: He continued fighting destroying several droids, after being shot multiple times, to buy more time for the Twi'leks to escape.
  • Meaningful Name/Punny Name: Just read it out loud. "I'm gonna die."
  • Rubber Forehead Alien: He is a Kajain'sa'Nikto, a species with no nose and several facial spikes.
  • You Shall Not Pass: Holds his own against an entire battallion of droids, continuing to fight even after he was shot multiple times.

Ky Narec

Voiced by: Corey Burton
Appears in: The Clone Wars

"You are strong in the Force, little one."

The Jedi Master and father figure of Asajj Ventress.
  • Canon Immigrant: He first appeared in a comicbook, and the episode "Nightsisters" integrated him into the series' canon.
  • Death by Origin Story: He was killed during a battle on Rattatak, his death marking Ventress' Start of Darkness.
  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: He died in Ventress' arms.
  • Facial Markings: He had small tattoos on his face.
  • In the Back: He was shot by a sniper while fighting pirates.
  • Same Story, Different Names: His role is very similar to Qui-Gon Jinn's role in The Phantom Menace: They both rescued a slave child on a remote Crapsack World, who was very powerful in the Force, took, or attempted to take them as their apprentices, without the Council's approval and despite it's disapproval respectively, they both died before they could finish the training of the children, and both apprentices eventually fell to the Dark Side.
  • The Obi-Wan: He's the deceased older mentor of Ventress.
  • Parental Substitute: He took in Ventress -who just lost the only "family" she had her slaver master- as his apprentice, and raised her since she was a small child.
  • Posthumous Character: He is only seen in flashbacks to Ventress' past, having died many years before the Clone Wars.

Bolla Ropal

Appears in: The Clone Wars

"You will...never...get me to...unlock the...holocron."

A Rodian Jedi Master, who was tasked with protecting the Kyber Crystal, which contained the list of every known Force-sensitive child too young to be taken in by the Jedi.
  • Determinator: He chose to be tortured to death rather than open the Holocron for Bane.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He appeared on a profile-photo in "Holocron Heist".
  • Electric Torture: Cad Bane used it on him to get him to open the Holocron. When he refused, Bane tortured him to death.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: Even the battle droids seemed to have been shaken by how cruel his death was. Also invoked by the writers; they intended Ropal's death to be exceptionally brutal to further emphasize Bane's status as a Knight of Cerebus.
  • Rubber Forehead Alien: He was a Rodian.
  • Sacrificial Lion: He was only needed to remind everyone how dangerous and nasty Cad Bane is.
  • Secret Keeper: He was the keeper of the Kyber crystal, which contains the names and locations of every Force-sensitive child too young to be taken in by the Jedi.

  • Character Death: He is killed by Darth Vader when he leads the 501st in sacking the Jedi Temple.
  • In-Series Nickname: His students refer to him as "the Troll".

Aalya Secura

Portrayed by: Amy Allen (films), Jennifer Hale (The Clone Wars)
Appears in: Attack of the Clones / / The Clone Wars / Revenge of the Sith

"Sometimes it takes courage to stick to one's beliefs, young Padawan."

A Twi'lek Jedi Knight who participated in many major battles throughout the Clone Wars. She was betrayed and killed by Commander Bly and her clone troopers during Order 66.
  • Action Girl: She is one of the few survivors of the two-hundred Jedi who went to Geonosis. She also manages to live through the Clone Wars, fighting in numerous major battles, only to get killed at the end during Order 66.
  • Alien Hair: Her "head tails", which are called lekku.
  • The Apprentice: She was trained as a Padawan by Quinlan Vos. In "Jedi Crash", she tells Ashoka that he was like a father to her.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her outfit leaves most of her waist exposed.
  • Blue-Skinned Space Babe: She fits the mold almost to a "T".
  • Canon Immigrant: First appeared in the Dark Horse Comic series, and was included in the films as a reference to that series.
  • Custom Uniform of Sexy: Her outfit is by far the most revealing of any Jedi.
  • Dropped A Bridge On Her: Even though she is a prominent character in the comics (and later the The Clone Wars series), she is seen getting executed by her Clone Troopers during Order 66 without even being able to defend herself.
  • Everything Sounds Sexier in French: Like the rest of the Twi'lek characters in The Clone Wars, she speaks with a French accent.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: She does the long sleeve/no sleeve version of the trope.
  • Impossible Hourglass Figure: Her model in The Clone Wars is as buxom as the actress who played her in the movies, but this version's waist is quite a bit narrower than her hips.
  • In the Back: Her troops open fire on her while her back is turned to them, and keep firing into her back long after she has gone down.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She's blue-skinned alien woman who has large breasts and wears a quite revealing outfit. Although compared to other Twi'leks, she is pretty modest.
  • Weapon of Choice: A blue lightsaber.

Nahdar Vebb

Portrayed by: Tom Kenny
Appears in: The Clone Wars

"But in this war, strength prevails. The rules have changed."

Kit Fisto's former Padawan, Nahdar was a Mol Calamari Jedi Knight.
  • A Father to His Men: Cares greatly for the clones under his command, and is very upset when they're killed.
  • Badass: Cuts his way through four of Grievous' Magna-Guards in seconds.
  • Character Death: He is killed by General Grievous, who uses one of his extra arms to pull out a blaster and shoot Nahdar while their lightsabers were locked together.
  • Fish People: He's a Mon Calamari.
  • Hot-Blooded: Which proves to be his Fatal Flaw when he impulsively goes up against Grievous.
  • Mauve Shirt: Gets just enough time to establish himself as sympathetic before Grievous offs him.
  • Never Bring a Knife to a Gun Fight: When dueling Grievous, the general Blade Locks his lightsaber, then shoots him with a blaster held in one of his other hands.
  • Revenge: Wants this for all those killed by Grievous.

Jedi Apprentices, younglings, and others

    Ahsoka Tano 

Ahsoka Tano

Portrayed by: Ashley Eckstein
Appears in: The Clone Wars

"I'm a Jedi Knight! ...Or soon will be."

A female Togruta who is assigned as Anakin Skywalker's Padawan learner during the Clone Wars. Though Anakin is initially dismissive towards her, she grows under his mentorship from a headstrong young student into a mature leader.
  • Action Duo: Forms one with Lux in "A Friend in Need", with Lux being the Action Survivor to her Action Girl.
  • Action Girl: She saves Anakin as many times as he saves her.
  • Affirmative Action Girl: Cross-media example; the series has a lot of Action Girls, but in the prequels Padmé was the only female character with an active role.
  • Age-Inappropriate Dress: As the series' most prominently featured female character, she's also the primary source of Fanservice, resulting in most of her outfits being quite questionable.
  • Alien Hair: Her horns and head-tails.
  • Animation Anatomy Aging: When introduced, Ahsoka has eyes disproportionately large with her completely round face, her horns are only stubs, and her headtails barely reach beyond her shoulders. After the Time Skip in "Heroes on Both Sides", her eyes noticeably shrink, her face becomes longer and angled, her horns grow larger and curved, and her headtails reach the middle of her chest. Her adult self (briefly shown in "Overlords") has almond-shaped eyes, an oval face, very large horns, and headtails reaching to her thighs.
  • The Apprentice: She's Anakin's Padawan during the time of the series.
  • Badass Adorable: Especially pre-Time Skip, when she was a short, inexperienced fourteen-year-old way in over her head, but never backed down. She even invokes it after she sees Seripas' true form:
    Ahsoka: You don't have to look tough to be tough.
  • Badass in Distress: More than a couple of times. Mostly justified, as she's just a learner and has the misfortune of running into opponents who are a match for even Master-level Jedi. Also justified because while she's badass, she's still in the middle of a galaxy-spanning war. War on any scale tends to be fairly hazardous, even if you are a Jedi.
  • Bare Your Midriff: When she was introduced at age 14, all she wore on her upper body was a truly tiny tubetop. Her slave disguise in the Zygerian trilogy was also a midriff baring one.
  • Big Brother Worship: Although she usually hides it with being snippy and snarky, and is not afraid to argue with him if she feels he's wrong about something, she looks up to Anakin very much, she has the utmost trust in him, and one of her greatest fears is disappointing him.
  • Big Ego, Hidden Depths: A few scenes in the Clone Wars movie, and several in episodes focusing on her, has shown that her initial brash, snippy and overconfident attitude is merely a facade to hide how insecure she feels regarding her status as Anakin's apprentice.
  • Black and White Morality: Becomes particularly clear in "Heroes on Both Sides", where she sums up the war, as "the Separatists are evil, and they (the Republic and the Jedi) must stop them", and can't grasp the idea of why the Senate is wasting time debating bank-(de)regulations. After meeting Mina and Lux Bonteri, she realises and invokes that the war is not as black and white as she thought.
  • Break the Cutie: Despite being a Plucky Girl, the events of the season 5 finale are just too much for her: Ahsoka gets framed for multiple murders, terrorism and sedition; the Jedi Council abandons her and makes no effort to conduct their own investigation; and the Senate Court (particularly Tarkin) are more than happy to sentence her to death. On top of that, Anakin discovers that her best friend is the one who framed her. In the face of all this, she understandably refuses Yoda's offer to return to the Order, despite the fact that they all but said outright they would promote her to Jedi Knight for putting up with all this crap. As she leaves the Temple, she sheds a Single Tear.
  • But Now I Must Go: She chooses to leave the Jedi Order after the aforementioned events discussed under "Break The Cutie".
  • Character Development: Over the course of the series she grows from a cheeky, stubborn, and rash girl to a serious, level-headed, and dependable young woman.
  • Clear My Name: The focus of the Sabotage arc, though Anakin has to pick up the slack after Ahsoka's attempts continually backfire and she's arrested. In the end, Anakin succeeds, but her trust in the Jedi Council is shattered, prompting her to leave.
  • Cleavage Window: Her second outfit has one, though it's a little too high to be a completely straight example.
  • Commanding Coolness: When she became a Padawan, she was also given the rank of "Jedi Commander".
  • Cool Big Sis: She very briefly acts as role-model to Kalifa, and to a much lesser extent to O-Mer and Jinx. Also towards Prince Lee-Char.
  • Cry Cute: Sheds a Single Tear at Obi-Wan's apparent death, and again when she leaves the Order in the season 5 finale.
  • Cunning Linguist: In the season 3 finale, she is able to understand Chewbacca's language, something the younger trainees with her could not do. Oddly, she doesn't understand a Twi'lek in season 5.
  • Damsel out of Distress: In the season 3 finale she's kidnapped by Trandoshans and thrown out into a jungle to be hunted down. She refuses to hide and run, and decides to fight back against the lizards.
  • Dating Catwoman: She's attracted to Lux Bonteri, the son of a Separatist leader. Later he becomes a rogue element.
  • David Versus Goliath: During the climax of the season 3 finale she has to fight Garnac, the Trandoshan leader. The guy is 2 meters tall, weighs 178 kilograms, has a very thick reptilian hide, and is armed with an axe and a knife in addition to his claws, and his species are on the same scale of physical strength as Wookiees. All Ahsoka has is her Waif-Fu and Force-skills.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Seems to have picked this up from Anakin and Obi-Wan, neither of whom she is particularly averse to snarking at.
  • Defector from Decadence: As a result of how the Jedi Order abandoned her when she had been framed for murder, Ahsoka decides not to return when given the offer.
  • Designated Girl Fight: She's had one in each season of The Clone Wars: Ventress in Season 1; a brainworm controlled Barriss Offee in Season 2; Aurra Sing in Season 3; Bo-Katan in Season 4, and the fallen Barriss in Season 5.
  • Designated Victim: She has a tendency of getting into real trouble very frequently. So far she's been captured/kidnapped on six occasions, and the Sabotage arc has her accused of multiple homicides and terrorism/sedition.
  • Disney Death: The Son temporarily kills her after she outlives her usefulness. Anakin and the Daughter bring her back by transferring her remaining life force to Ahsoka.
  • Dreaming of Things to Come: She foresees Aurra Sing's attempt to assassinate Padmé in her dreams in "Assassin", and has a vision of her adult self warning her about the darkness in Anakin in "Overlords".
  • Dual Wielding: She's added a shoto (short lightsaber) to her arsenal during the Time Skip between "The Hunt for Ziro" and "Heroes on Both Sides". Doubles as a bit of Shown Their Work, as the offhand weapon is supposed to be shorter in Real Life martial arts.
  • Effortless Amazonian Lift: In "Sabotage", after Anakin gets knocked out while piloting his starfighter and Artoo has to make a crash-landing on a too-short cliff, Ahsoka leaps over to his fighter, hoists him from it, then jumps back to the cliff moments after the starfighter goes barreling off. Especially impressive considering that she could barely lift him back in the Season 1 episode "Jedi Crash".
  • Ensign Newbie: Lampshaded in The Movie by Rex, who was quick to point out that even if she does outrank him, it doesn't make up for her lack of experience.
  • Facial Markings: Supplementary materials of the show suggests that they're cultural tattoos.
  • Fatal Flaw: Her overconfidence and drive to prove herself worthy of being Anakin's student get her into situations well beyond her ability to handle a lot of time. She's also somewhat quick to make judgements, and she has the utmost trust towards Anakin, the Jedi Order and the Republic itself, things that backfire very hard on her during the Sabotage arc.
  • Fingerless Gloves: She wears them with both of her standard outfits.
  • Form-Fitting Wardrobe: Her second outfit. Makes one wonder how can she fit her head (which is quite a bit larger than a human's, due to her horns and head-tails) through the tight-looking neckpart of her shirt.
  • Fragile Speedster: She's quick and agile, but initially she was lacking a bit in strength and endurance. She eventually grew a lot stronger, but even then, her speed and agility remained her main skills.
  • Friend to All Children: Right from her introduction in The Movie, she is shown to be quite good with children, starting with the way she takes care of Rotta, Jabba's infant son, and culminating in the Young Jedi-arc, where she repeatedly puts her life in risk to protect the younglings under her care.
  • Generation Xerox: To Anakin; she has an attitude similar to his and lost her lightsaber once.
  • Go-Go Enslavement: During the Zygerian arc she's disguised as a slave girl and is given a rather questionable Bedlah Babe outfit that was even more revealing than her first one.
  • Helping Would Be Kill Stealing: Takes this role in the Onderon arc. With her assistance, the rebellion would have gone much more smoothly, but it would defeat the purpose of internal rebellion to have obvious outsider aid in the form of the Jedi.
  • Hidden Depths: Ahsoka's brief sojourn to the dark side in "Altar of Mortis" implies that she is holding back quite a bit of frustration with Anakin's teaching methods, as well as her perception that he doesn't entirely trust or believe in her.
  • Honor Before Reason: In a "Friend in Need". She must have been perfectly aware that even if she did have her lightsabers, she'd have a rough time surviving a fight alone against the entire Death Watch, yet she attacked them with only a makeshift staff and her martial arts skills to protect the villagers.
  • Horned Humanoid: Her horns grant her super effective hearing.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: With Anakin.
  • Hypocritical Humor: She called Ventress (who apparently chose to be bald) a "hairless harpy", despite being naturally hairless herself.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: They signify her youth and naiveté.
  • Insignia Ripoff Ritual: In the Season 5 finale, her Padawan braid is taken from her when she's expelled from the Jedi Order.
  • Interspecies Romance: She's a Togruta and has a love interest in the form of Lux Bonteri, a human.
  • Kid-Appeal Character: At the beginning, but she grows out of this role as the series progresses.
  • Knight, Knave and Squire: The Squire to Obi-Wan's Knight and Anakin's Knave; she even invokes it in The Movie, when she tells Anakin that he's the one with experience from which she looks forward to learning from.
  • The Lancer: To Anakin, a role she shares with Rex, and occasionally with Obi-Wan.
  • Little Miss Badass: She is very young and inexperienced, but also quick-thinking and tough as nails.
  • Love Triangle: Caught in one with Lux and Steela, an Onderon freedom fighter, during the Onderon arc.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Masculine Girl to Lux's Feminine Boy.
  • Medal of Dishonor: In the Season 5 finale, after she's been cleared of all charges of sedition, terrorism and murder, she is offered a chance to return to the Order, and it's implied that the Jedi Council is willing to knight her for the strength and resilience she had shown throughout the whole ordeal. Since they were the ones who kicked her out of the Order, this comes off as a rather rude attempt to make up for it, and she refuses to even return to the Order.
  • Mid-Season Upgrade: In the middle of season 3, a Time Skip updates her appearance alongside most of the cast. Ahsoka also picks up Dual Wielding, pushing it into this trope.
  • Mini Dress Of Power: Her first outfit consists of a truly tiny tube-top, and a Dangerously Short Skirt made safe by tights.
  • Ms. Fanservice: All the examples of Age-Inappropriate Dress should make this abundantly clear.
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: Over the course of the series, she's displayed feats of physical strength belying her stature numerous times, such as flooring Cad Bane and Atai Moleck, or when she pulls up the much larger Obi-Wan who was hanging from a cliff. Could be justified with the Force.
  • My Significance Sense Is Tingling: After her first dreams about Aurra Sing attempting to kill Padmé, she is also able to sense the danger to the senator while awake. This includes sensing Aurra’s location twice, which allows her to save Padmé on both occasions.
  • Never Live It Down: In-universe. Ahsoka calls Anakin "Skyguy" exactly once in The Movie, rarely in the series compared to "Snips", and she generally becomes a lot more respectful towards Anakin by Season 2. Despite this, Anakin still calls her "Snips" a lot (granted, she did pick up some of his and Obi-Wan's Deadpan Snarker tendencies).
  • The Nicknamer: She initially called Anakin "Skyguy" and referred to R2 as "Artooie". She's grown out of it fairly quickly.
  • Orange-Skinned Space Babe: Once she grows up a bit, Ahsoka proves to be fairly attractive.
  • Plucky Girl: Ahsoka's been beaten, tortured, hunted, nearly killed several times, and watched several friends and allies suffer and die over the course of the war. Yet despite all of this, she never complains or gives up. Sadly, being betrayed and framed for sedition and murder by a close friend, abandoned by the Jedi Council, and almost sentenced to death by the Republic Court in the Season 5 finale manages to break her.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt: The only thing that saves the Dangerously Short Skirt she wears with both of her regular outfits.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Barriss's blue. She even has the skin color to match.
  • Rescue Romance: She saves Lux from being executed on Dooku's orders.
  • Reverse Grip: Her fighting style.
  • Rubber-Forehead Aliens: She's a Togruta.
  • Secret Secret Keeper: The Season 5 finale implies that she knows about Anakin and Padmé being together. Confirmed by Filoni in an interview, although he did not specify how much she knows.
  • Super Senses: Since Togruta horns work as passive echolocators, she has very sharp hearing, which she uses to find the kidnapped infants in "Children of the Force" and to eavesdrop on a conversation regarding Aurra Sing in a noisy bar in "Leathal Trackdown".
  • Shorttank: She starts out as a snippy, strong-headed and a bit tomboyish girl, wearing clothes befitting the attitude, but she mostly grows out of it by Season 3.
  • Team Dad/Team Mom: She shows both the disciplinary and protective traits of a Team Dad, and the gentle, kind nurturing traits of a Team Mom while guarding the younglings in the Young Jedi-arc. She's even referred to as their "chaperon" at one point.
  • Tempting Fate: She has a tendency early on in the series to say something like "The hard part is over," when it seems they've won the day. True to formula, things always turn for the worse soon afterwards. Apparently she learns her lesson, because she stops doing it by Season 2.
  • Thigh-High Boots: She's been wearing knee-high ones since her introduction, but in her vision of her future, her adult-self wears boots reaching to the middle of her thighs, complete with Zettai Ryouiki.
  • Token Non-Human: The cast of The Clone Wars as a whole has quite a few aliens, but Ahsoka is the only one in the main group.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The tomboy to Barriss's girly girl, the girly girl to Steela's tomboy.
  • Took a Level in Badass: She's taken several over the course of the series. Probably best testifying this are her two duels against General Grievous: while in Season 1 Grievous defeated her without even trying, during their rematch in Season 5, she was actually able to hold her own and knock him back once, despite still being heavily outmatched by the cyborg general.
  • Trauma Conga Line: The final arc of Season 5 is just one emotional blow to Ahsoka after another, leading up to her resignation from the Jedi Order.
  • Traumatic Hair Cut: As a Togruta, she doesn't have hair by default, so she can't grow a Padawan braid. Instead, she wears a braid made of beads to symbolize her status as a Jedi-in-training. Cad Bane took it from her as a trophy when he captured her. She didn't appear to be anything but mildly annoyed by it, but she did make a point to take it back after his capture.
  • Tritagonist: Along with Obi-Wan, she's the secondary main character of the The Clone Wars.
  • Undercover as Lovers: In "A Friend in Need" Ahsoka needed an exuse for why she was with Lux, when he went to make a deal with the Death Watch, and she got involved. She claimed she was his betrothed.
  • Unusual Eyebrows: A subversion of the "no eyebrows" category. As usual for a Togruta, the only hair on her head is her eyelashes. However, she does have eyebrow-shaped white stripes above her eyes.
  • Vapor Wear: Both her tiny tubetop and the Sexy Backless Outfit are "suggesting" this.
  • Waif-Fu: She's a very skilled hand-to-hand combatant.
  • Well Done Daughter Girl: She tries to cover it most of the time, but Anakin's acknowledgment means a lot to her, as seen in The Movie and when she rants about not getting any while she is corrupted by the Son. She finally earns it in the Season 3 finale.
  • Wrench Wench: In "Ghosts of Mortis", it seems she's picked up some of Anakin's skills with machines.
  • Wrongful Accusation Insurance: In the Season 5 finale, after she's cleared of charges of sedition and murder, no mention is made of the fact that she escaped custody, assaulted both military and civilian law enforcement, and consorted with a war criminal.
  • You Shall Not Pass: In "A Necessary Bond" Ahsoka holds up Grievous while the younglings escape onto Slave I, commandeered by Hondo.

Evil Ahsoka

During her, Anakin, and Obi-Wan's stay on Mortis, the Son kidnaps Ahsoka and infects her with the dark side, turning her into a psychotically violent version of herself. She's eventually healed by the combined efforts of the Daughter and Anakin.

    Barriss Offee 

Barriss Offee

Portrayed by: Nalini Krishan (films), Meredith Salenger (The Clone Wars)
Appears in: Attack of the Clones / The Clone Wars

"If you need to, you'll do what must be done. I know it."

Barriss was the apprentice of Luminara Unduli since before the war had started. Her personality is not unlike her Master's, but seems to be a bit more easy-going. During the Second Battle of Geonosis, she led Ahsoka and herself through the catacombs of Poggle the Lesser main droid-factory, and together they destroyed the facility, becoming close friends along the way. However, during the course of the war, she became embittered, and eventually fell to the Dark Side.
  • Action Girl/Dark Action Girl: Anyone who can successfully sneak up on Ventress, curb-stomp Ahsoka, and even briefly hold her own against an enraged Anakin deserves the title.
  • Anti-Villain: Her motivations in the Sabotage arc are somewhat justified, but her actions are just unforgivable.
  • Arc Villain: She's revealed to be the mastermind behind the bombing of the Temple in the Sabotage arc.
  • Badass Adorable: The series' Animesque style makes Barriss look positively cuddly.
  • Badass Bookworm: She's extremely intelligent, as proven by her intensive studies of the Geonosian hive system, and later, her manipulations during the "Sabotage" arc.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She pretended to still be Ahsoka's friend while framing her for the acts of terrorism and murder she herself committed.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: Allowing Ventress to live after stealing her lightsabers. Just killing Ventress would have silenced the last possible witness to Ahsoka's innocence. Befitting the trope, failing to eliminate Ventress led directly to Barriss' downfall.
  • Can't Catch Up: To Anakin. She first met Anakin when he was a Padawan. She still is one while he has since become a Knight and gained his own Padawan.
  • The Chessmaster: She was the mastermind behind the bombing of the Temple. First she convinced Letta to feed explosive nanodroids to her husband, who worked in the Temple, using him as the bomb. When evidence led back to Letta (purely by chance), she had arranged for Letta to ask Ahsoka for help, at which point Barriss force-choked her while Ahsoka was in the room to pin suspicion on her. Then she arranged for Ahsoka's escape, knowing that she was looking for proof of her innocence. Barriss pretended to provide that proof in order to frame Ahsoka for the bombing as well, in the process stealing Ventress' lightsabers and Cool Helmet to deflect the suspicions of anyone who might believe Ahsoka's story. Were it not for the fact that Anakin decided to hear Ventress out, her plan would have worked perfectly.
  • Combat Pragmatist: She ambushed Ventress by hurling a heavy piece of metal at her before knocking her out with a pipe. Later she threw heavy barrels at Ahsoka during their duel, and detonated containers of high pressured gas in her face.
  • Commanding Coolness: As with every other Padawan, she was given the rank of Jedi Commander when the war started.
  • Crazy-Prepared: She memorized all two-hundred junctions of a Geonosian hive in advance for a stealth infiltration.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: First she successfully ambushed Ventress, then easily beat Ahsoka up. However she found herself on the receiving end of one when she had to face Anakin.
  • Cute and Psycho: She's soft spoken, well-mannered and overall one of the nicest characters in the show... then she turned out to be a mass murderer-terrorist and a highly capable Chessmaster-Manipulative Bastard of her own right.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She shows a few hints of this.
    Barriss: Whatever you're doing, I hope it works, because I'd sure rather have died fighting up there than starve to death down here.
    Barriss: That's a comforting thought. Thanks.
  • Distressed Damsel: Ahsoka had to save Barriss's life when she was overtaken by a Geonosian zombie-worm and trying to kill her.
  • Dual Wielding: With Ventress' lightsabers.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: Ahsoka's reaction when Anakin revealed her betrayal is simply and silently asking her if it was true.
  • Evil Former Friend: Ahsoka considered her a friend.
  • Evil Genius: Master-minded a plot, that completely fooled and cornered the Jedi Council.
  • The Extremist Was Right: Despite how extreme her actions were in the Sabotage arc, she has a very good point about the increasing militarization of the Jedi Order.
  • Face-Heel Turn: She becomes disillusioned with the Jedi Order, believing that they've become a corrupt shadow of their former self. This prompts her to act against them.
  • Facial Markings: She has a set of cultural tattoos across her nose.
  • Fallen Hero: Went from a heroic Jedi to a hypocritical terrorist.
  • Green-Skinned Space Babe: Although, like her master, she's more classically beautiful than sexy.
  • Hypocrite: She was disgusted by how the Jedi have become warmongers and, as she put it, "an army fighting for the dark side". How did she fight against this? With terrorism, deception and betrayal, the exact methods the dark side favors. She also claimed every Jedi should be tried, yet she framed Ahsoka specifically to avoid being caught. She at least seems to acknowledge it when she says that she kept Ventress' lightsabers because she felt that they suited her. Red lightsabers are usually seen as the signs of a darksider.
  • In the Hood: She almost always has her hood up.
  • Knight Templar: Her reasoning against the Jedi's involvement in the war is sound and just, but resorting to terrorism and deception to get her point through made her even worse than what she claimed to have been fighting against.
  • Laser Blade: Wields a blue lightsaber.
  • Lady of War: Her fighting style is rather graceful, like her teacher's.
  • Manipulative Bitch: While pretending to be helping Ahsoka, she manipulated her moves to incriminate her even more.
  • Motive Rant: Delivers one to a courtroom full of people after her crimes are uncovered.
  • Nice Girl: She is a very good friend to Ahsoka. The friendship was genuine at first, but became a façade after Barriss started going down the path of the Dark Side.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Ahsoka's red. She even has the eye and lightsaber colors to match.
  • The Reveal: She was the traitor who blew up the Temple hangar and framed Ahsoka.
  • Teen Genius: To memorize two-hundred junctions of a literal bughive requires one to be this.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The girly girl to Ahsoka's tomboy.
  • The Unfettered: Manipulating innocent civilians, killing innocent people and her own friends alike, framing Ahsoka and nearly getting her killed... Barriss proved that nothing was beyond her in her attempt to end the growing corruption of the Jedi.
  • Ungrateful Bitch: Ahsoka saved her life twice, yet she was perfectly fine with using her as a patsy for her own crimes, which nearly resulted in Ahsoka's execution.
  • Villain Ball: As Anakin points out, the smart thing to do would have been to dispose of Ventress' lightsabers after using them to attack Ahsoka. Barriss admits that she kept them out of vanity.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She believed the Jedi Order was degenerating from peace-keepers into warmongers, and believed they should be punished for it but this doesn't justify a bombing that killed many innocent people.

    Other Padawans and Younglings 

Knox

Portrayed by: Dee Bradley Baker
Appears in: The Clone Wars

The Nautolan Padawan of Halsey. He met his end shortly after his master's.

Kalifa, O-Mer, and Jinx

Portrayed by: Gwendoline Yeo (Kalifa), Cam Clarke (O-Mer), Sunil Malhotra (Jinx)
Appear in: The Clone Wars

Three Jedi Younglings who had been kidnapped by Trandoshan sportshunters sometime preceding or during the Clone Wars. By the time the simiarly captured Ahsoka arrived on the island they were held, the three of them were losing hope, as their strength was enough only to hide and try to avoid being shot down for as long as possible.
  • Almighty Janitor: Jinx can use Jedi Mind Trick, despite being a youngling who had been kidnapped before he was even made a Padawan (granted it took some help from Chewbacca to work). Kalifa, techically also a youngling, was able to lift and strangle a Trandoshan using Force grip. Could be handwaved with the extremely hard fight to survive on the Trandoshan hunting island, which required them to develop faster, than usual.
  • Badass: Merely surviving that jungle for so long qualifies all three of them.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Jinx can be very sarcastic at times:
    Ahsoka: [Chewbacca] says his homeworld is very close.
    Jinx: That's great, but it might as well be Coruscant as far as I'm concerned. We have no ship.
    Ahsoka: (translating Chewie's angry growling) He thinks he can contact his home planet, if we find a way to transmit a signal.
    Jinx: Right, and how would we do that? Send smoke signals?
  • In the Back: Garnac shot Kalifa in the back after his son died trying to kill her and Ahsoka.
  • I Will Only Slow You Down: Kalifa, knowing that she was dying, asks Ahsoka to save herself because she wants Ahsoka to take care of the others.
  • The Lancer: Jinx was acting as this to both Kalifa, and Ahsoka.
  • Last Request: Kalifa asked Ahsoka to take care of Jinx and O-Mer before dying from the wound caused by Garnac's blaster rifle.
  • The Leader: Kalifa was a Type II, calm, level-headed leader. After Ahsoka arrived, she slowly took over the position.
  • Power Trio
  • Rubber-Forehead Aliens: Jinx is a Twi'lek and O-Mer is a Cerean.
  • Sacrificial Lion: Kalifa's death served to show, that not even children are safe on the Trandoshan hunting island.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: Surviving on Wasskah clearly had an effect on all of them, but Kalifa shows it the worst, losing her temper with Ahsoka when recalling the previous Padawans who had been killed, and hatefully attacking a Trandoshan hunter.
  • Token Human: Out of the remaining younglings on Wasskah, Kalifa is the only human.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: Kalifa strangling a Trandoshan with an expression of intense hatred on her face.
  • Use Your Head: In a Combination Attack with Jinx, O-Mer headbutted one of the Trandoshans.
  • The World's Expert on Getting Killed: Kalifa's been held on the hunting island for the longest time, and has statedly out-lived Padawan-learners, despite being only youngling herself. She also told the older and better-trained Ahsoka in her face, that she had the experince in surviving the hunt. Naturally she's killed soon after Ahsoka's arrival. Subverted in that, she was expert in avoiding the trandoshans as much as possible, and she died when they were ambushed while scouting after the trandoshan's base.

The top students of their class, this group of younglings were introduced when they participated the Gathering, a Rite of Passage, during which they harvested their own lightsaber-crystals. During the rite, they had to face, and overcome their shortcomings and weaknesses. Afterwards they learnt how to built their first lightsabers from Professor Huyang. Their training in the Temple is apparently overseen by Tera Sinube.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Petro.
  • An Aesop: All the kids have to learn one to get their crystals.
  • Badass Adorable: They become this during the course of their training.
  • Bilingual Dialogue: Gungi and Byph are physiologically incapable of speaking Galactic Basic, but they're perfectly capable of understanding it. So they use their own language to talk to the others (and each other), who are also capable of understanding them.
  • The Cameo: They were seen practicing lightsaber-wielding with Tera Sinube in "The Wrong Jedi" [during Anakin's duel with Barriss.
  • Chekhov's Classroom/Chekhov's Skill: The younglings were shown practicing acrobatic moves in a flashback at the beginning of "The Gathering". In "Bound for Rescue", they use these moves to con their way into a travelling circus, allowing them to sneak into Hondo's base and rescue Ahsoka.
  • Children Are Innocent
  • Conscience Makes You Go Back: Petro's decision to come to Katooni's rescue rather than continue trying to find his own crystal.
    • Katooni pulls one on Hondo in "A Necessary Bond", convincing him to go back and rescue Ahsoka and the other younglings from Grievous. He does, even though he has nothing to gain from it.
  • Cool Mask: They all get one as part of their circus disguises in "Bound for Rescue".
  • Cool Sword: All of them, obviously, but Gungi stands out by making a saber with a wood casing where as the rest make regular ones.
  • Cowardly Lion: Byph in "The Gathering". He's completely grown out of it as of "Bound for Rescue".
  • Cute Little Fangs: Gungi is a Rare Male Example.
  • Determinator: Katooni, who scaled a cliff face to get to her lightsaber crystal.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Gungi, due to being a Wookiee.
    • In addition, Zatt and Byph are barefoot when outside of their cold weather gear.
  • Face Your Fears: Byph had to do this to get his crystal.
  • Fish People: Zatt, who's a Nautolan like Kit Fisto.
  • Generation Xerox: Petro seems very similar to Anakin in a few ways.
  • Hero-Worshipper: Petro has a few moments of this:
    • First, after watching Ahsoka taking on Hondo and his pirates, he exclaimed to Zatt and Ganodi who weren't present, that they should have seen her, while wildy imitating lightsaber swinging. Later when the younglings watched Ahsoka dueling Grievous he clenched his fists, and took a typical jittering pose.
    • While building his lightsaber, he exclaimed that he'll challenge Obi-Wan to a duel with it. Later when Obi-Wan answered their distress call, he went "The General Kenobi?"
  • Human Alien: Katooni, who's a Tholothian just like Adi Gallia above.
  • Humanoid Aliens: Ganodi and Gungi both have the basic body-structure of a human, but as a Wookie and a Rodian, they are significantly different from Rubber-Forehead Aliens, Human Aliens, and humans.
  • I Surrender, Suckers: Petro lets the pirates take his lightsaber away from him. This is because he assembled it incorrectly and it will explode if activated for more than a second, which he goads the pirates into doing.
  • Indy Ploy: Petro spends most of "Bound for Rescue" doing line-of-sight planning, which works out rather well.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Petro.
  • Just a Machine: Ganodi's initial thoughts on Huyang.
  • Laser Blade: Their quest to build theirs forms the impetus of the plot for their arc.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Petro
  • Morality Pet: Is it too early to say Katooni is one for Hondo?
  • Needle in a Stack of Needles: Ganodi winds up in a cave full of crystals and has to trust the Force to find the right one.
  • Nice Hat: Katooni's is another Tholothian headdress.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Petro talked his friends into launching a counterattack, despite Ahsoka directly forbidding it, which ultimately achived nothing, except necessiating Ahsoka to put herself in risk, which resulted in her capture.
  • Odd Friendship: As of the end of "A Necessary Bond", there are hints that Katooni is beginning to form one with Hondo. Could also count as an Intergenerational Friendship.
  • Only Sane Girl: Katooni is usually the voice of reason.
  • Out of Focus: Ganodi got the least screen-time and character development of the six younglings, not even joining the rescue party.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: What they've all become as of "A Necessary Bond".
  • Rubber-Forehead Aliens: Zatt is nautolan like Kit Fisto.
  • Run or Die: When cornered by Grievous, Ahsoka and the younglings prepared to fight, but in the last second Hondo and Katooni arrived with the Slave-I to extract them. Ahsoka instructed the younglings to run, while she held up Grievous. Once the younglings were safe, Ahsoka too abandoned the fight, knowing that she had no chance of winning.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Petro
  • The So-Called Coward: Byph has to overcome his timid personality in his first episode. In the second, he willingly risks being shot by acting as bait to lure the bad guys into a trap.
  • The Unintelligible: Byph and Gungi.

    Professor Huyang 

Professor Huyang

Portrayed by: David Tennant
Appears in: The Clone Wars

"You must trust that the components that form your lightsaber are meant to be together; there is no other way. It is the Force that binds them."

An ancient lightsaber-architect droid, who has been serving the Jedi Order for well over a millennia, claiming to had taught thousands of generations of Jedi younglings to built their first lightsabers.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Has both primary arms shot off by one of Hondo's pirates, but it's more of an inconvenience than anything. He gets them reattached at the end of "A Necessary Bond".
  • Badass: During the climax of his first appearance, he epically takes down one of Hondo's pirates after having both of his arms and head shot off.
  • Badass Boast:
    • Gives one to Ganodi when he questions the ability of a droid to teach them about lightsaber construction.
      Huyang: Many years I have been on this ship teaching many a Jedi before you, and I will continue teaching many a Jedi after you. Call me what you want, but inside my memory banks I contain a record of every lightsaber ever made, and the Jedi who fashioned it.
    • And another, when one of Hondo's pirates shot off his head:
      Huyang: How dare you?! I've lived a thousand years on this ship and never lost a fight. I'm not about to start today!
  • Badass Bookworm: Has an extensive knowledge of lightsabers and how they are built.
  • Badass Teacher: He not only teaches younglings about building their lightsabers, he also defends them from pirates.
  • British Accents: He is voiced by David Tennant, after all.
  • Deadpan Snarker: One would imagine it comes from having to deal with Jedi children.
  • Expy: To Ollivander. Also C-3PO.
  • Gentleman Snarker: Huyang has the demeanor of a gentlemanly English professor, but he isn't averse to a bit of snarking at his students.
  • Lampshade Hanging: When meeting Gungi he points out that Force-sensitive Wookiees are exceptionally rare. The Expanded Universe has a grand total of three, due to a mandate forbidding any additional Wookiee Jedi.
  • Multi-Armed Multitasking: His backpack unfolds into an extra pair of arms, which he uses in his work.
  • Off with His Head!: His head gets separated from his body, but remains operational. He can even control his body remotely. His head is re-attached in "A Necessary Bond".
  • The Professor: But, of course.
  • Quintessential British Gentleman: A mechanical version of the trope: He has a High-Class Glass, speaks in a British accent, is polite and soft-spoken to all, and has a metallic mustache on his face.
  • Ridiculously Human Robot: Judging by the boast mentioned above, he's rather proud of himself, and doesn't take perceived insults to his task well.
  • Time Abyss: He claims to have taught thousands of generations of Jedi Younglings how to build their lightsabers. He mentions that even Yoda had been one of them.
